Tastings Social Presents Mountain Bird Restaurant Review

: This charming and diminutive 31-seat bistro, with its wood-beamed ceilings, rustic decorative accents and cozy vibe, brings a welcome touch of culinary diversity to the still-burgeoning dining scene of Harlem. Hors d'oeuvres such as an inventive and pillowy foie gras dumpling in consommé and a stacked Maine crab salad are must-try items. Chef Kenichi Tajima's sweet seared sea scallops are delicate and aromatic; a duck duo of roasted breast and leg confit is tender and full of flavor. A wine list featuring selections from Bordeaux and other French regions, along with international varietals, complements the cuisine. Desserts like a buttery and crisp apple tart bring the meal to a sweet, satisfying finish.
